The criminalization of our children continues

Arrested, expelled and who knows what's gonna happen to her. But chances are, her life is ruined. Why? A science experiment with a water bottle and the cap blew off.

But she's just an unimportant person, not of any rich family or anything so who cares, right?

What's gonna happen when YOUR kid makes a mistake?


May 1, 2013 |



A Florida teen with an exemplary record is facing federal charges after conducting what a classmate calls “a science project gone bad.”

16-year-old Kiera Wilmot is accused of mixing housing chemicals in a small water bottle at Bartow High School, causing the cap to fly off and produce a bit of smoke. The experiment was conducted outdoors, no property was damaged, and no one was injured.

Not long after Wilmot’s experiment, authorities arrested her and charged her with “possession/discharge of a weapon on school property and discharging a destructive device,” according to WTSP-TV. The school district proceeded to expel Wilmot for handling the “dangerous weapon,” also known as a water bottle. She will have to complete her high school education through an expulsion program.

Friends and staffers, including the school principal, came to Wilmot’s defense, telling media that authorities arrested an upstanding student who meant no harm.

"She is a good kid," principal Ron Richard told WTSP-TV. "She has never been in trouble before. Ever."

"She just wanted to see what happened to those chemicals in the bottle," a classmate added. "Now, look what happened."

Polk County Schools stands by its decision to expel Wilmot, asserting in a statement, “there are consequences to actions,” and calling Wilmot’s experiment a “serious breach of conduct.”

BUT...the cap flew off and there was smoke!! Terrorist attack!! Arrest her!!
So...reckless behavior at school with potentially very dangerous consequences should only be punished if someone is actually seriously injured?

Punishment for causing a disturbance, (and nothing more)? Suspend her from school. But to arrest her? JFC.

I didn't defend the arrest--that's up to the police.

So, what is it that you're defending?

My original argument was meant to highlight that I'm annoyed by her getting arrested, not expelled. This happened on school grounds and the school has the authority to make that decision. But the police arresting her for what happened? Insane.

I'm defending the school's actions. I don't know if an arrest was warranted, but intentionally causing an explosion at a school probably is automatically gounds for arrest under the local law. Whether it should be prosecuted--I don't feel I have enough info to have an opinion, but my gut feeling is no.

You can't seriously be ok with a zero tolerance policy, and yet you are. And, according to the article, the girl claims that she thought it would lead to smoke, not an explosion, so you either still haven't read the article or you're choosing to ignore that part of it.

The only way this makes any sense is if this was not part of a class project.
Then they likely have issues with her using any chemicals, unsupervised, on school property.

genuine enthusiasm and curiosity for learning from a bright student with a promising future = GTFO.

if she'd been sharing inspirational quotes on facebook like the rest of her moronic counterparts she'd still be a model pupil, sad.

Sure, let's make something blow up at 7 am, before classes start. Who knows what it was? Like I've said I'm sure some kid has ****ed up making pop bottle meth in Iowa before. If it was simply explosives, is that really any better? It's just a suspension for a couple days to me, but it doesn't feel right that the girl is a complete victim.

This looks like a fun thread to play a game in. Guess which poster is a very little pasty white guy that got picked on in school and hates his tiny penis so much he smacks his ballsack repeatedly to punish himself for it, is.
